Description eeeno 2006-09-28 09:43:27 UTC
When using the default Dbase format, there is not enought datatypes for the  
fields. Infact there is no integers, just decimals, no auto-increment feature.  
If i try to change the default formatting of the fields, it refuses to accept  
the change.  Has it been simplified this much?

clu->eeeno: 1. dBase is a rather old, primitive and restricted database format -
if you want an improvement like more datatypes etc. it can get incompatible with
other applications which cannot handle such things - but feel free to write a
'feature enhancement' for your suggestion and if more people are interested in
such an improvement it will maybe implemented
2. the topic with the refuse of formatting i cannot repro - may you add a more
precise step by step description for that

sorry, wrong handling: like fs has written, the 'formatting thing' that i cannot
repro deserve a seperate issue with a precise step by step description => eeeno:
please do so, if this is still reproducable

the first part with the insufficent number of field types is no bug, rather a
'feature enhancement' that is send further to the requirements team for evaluation
